Mean Muscles is a blog written and edited by a team of trained and experienced fitness instructors some of whom were actually involved in training for the Olympics. This site is driven by a passion for teaching everyone how to build muscles the proper way with their knowledge, experiences, and talents, and the desire to spread the word to the rest of the world.
The purpose of this site is to provide good and creditable information for people who are interested in building muscles and gain more knowledge without being overwhelmed by the complexity of the muscle building world. It takes time and money (design, illustrations, writing, photos, review materials, etc.) to create the content so we do accept compensation from advertising and affiliate programs.
This compensation allows us to continue creating quality content for our users, something that we absolutely love to do. Creating a quality site for people to share our interests in muscle building and maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle has always been the ultimate goal and we feel blessed to be able to earn something from doing what we love.
That being said please understand that some of the outgoing links on this site are affiliate links.
Only if you purchase a product using the affiliate link will we receive a referral fee. Purchasing a product through an affiliate link does not increase the price of the product and in some cases you may pay less through an arrangement we have made with the seller.
If you plan to purchase a product online that we have an affiliation with we would really appreciate if you used our affiliate link as it helps us keep the site up and running with quality content.
We try to not let our affiliate programs get in the way of creating a quality site and ensure that all our reviews are honest and unbiased because what we care most about most is you.
To help you understand the relationships we have with some of the companies and sites we link to, please see the following:
We do NOT accept any direct compensation for reviewing products. In most cases we have direct experience with the products that we review either due to personal interest or because users have requested such a review. In some cases, the seller may send us a product for review purposes which we would have to send back later. Whether I buy or receive the products for review does not impact the review in any way.
Many of the companies and manufacturers we reference offer affiliate programs. We participate in these programs as a way to promote companies that we feel are good players in the industry as well as earn something for our efforts. So, if you purchase something after following one of our links we may receive a referral fee.
We take great pride in the fact that our reviews reflect an honest opinion, every user we are able to help make a good decision when purchasing guitar related equipment is another reason to feel good about running this site.
